- 0Dec 7, '12 by canigraduateI reread the whole thread (rhyme every time). Still think it's funny.
Here's one of my favorite inappropriate remarks: "It's time for your pillow therapy." Patients usually think it's a humorous allusion to nap time if they overhear it. Little do they know that I really mean a DIRT nap, tee hee. (Jeez, lighten up. I DO NOT advocate pillow therapy, but it sure is fun to imagine it.)

I expect LOLS when I open a humor post!I would hate to see the criticism here if he didn't add the joke disclaimer. We got hurt feelings from a satyrical IV joke. I guess humor is like dimples, you can't develope dimples
- 1Dec 7, '12 by Ntheboat2I'm surprised that anyone would take this seriously or offensive. It's CLEARLY meant to be a joke.
I find humor in it and I actually HATE even giving injections. I mean, I'll do it and I can do it well, but I hate giving injections even more than I hate starting IV's. I don't like getting injections (so I always just turn my head and don't look) so if there's someone else who CAN do it instead of me then I always step back and let them. I just hate to inflict pain, even if it's as minor as a shot, on anyone...even people who have been IV drug users...weird, I know.
Still, it's a funny joke.
